A new Working Group in Indonesia to focus on decarbonising residential buildings

2020/07 | South-East Asia

Early March 2020, GBPN together with its local partners decided to establish a policy advisory working group called HIDUP (meaning ‘Live’ in Bahasa Indonesia) which is a multi-lateral working group, composed of building experts from both public and private entities. 

The HIDUP working group will work together to assess current regulatory frameworks at national and regional level, and review the potential and limits to drive a building market shift towards a low carbon one, especially in the residential sector. Through their work the Group aims to develop strategies for national and regional public entities to reform and enforce building policies.

Indonesia, as the fourth most populated country in the world with a rapid emerging economy faces many environmental challenges. There’s an urgent need to fast forward the implementation of carbon reducing measures such as energy efficiency or solar PV rooftop systems in Indonesia on a larger scale.
